Minister of State for Provincial Affairs in the Midlands province  Larry Mavhima is strongly set on a collision course with Minister of State Security in charge of the dreaded Central Intelligence Organisation Owen Mudha Ncube over a gang formally known as Al Shabaab and now known as  "vakomana ve mabhemba" or simply mabhuru.

Mavhima is reportedly accusing Ncube of using the Amakorokoza militia to run the province in a mafia style that undermines the elected and appointed structures on ZANU PF and of the government.

A source who spoke to this publication said Mavhima was up in arms with Ncube because he feels he is not in control over the province as it is supposed to happen but his powers are being usurped by the CIO Minister.

The majority of these panga wielding gangsters and artisanal miners claim allegiance and loyalty to Owen Mudha Ncube aka Touch Bhomba.

The minister of provincial affairs has written to the President seeking his intervention to no avail the source has said.

The Central Intelligence Organisation (CIO), which Ncube now takes charge of, was known in the past for abductions, extrajudicial killings and causing the disappearence of political opponents of former President Robert Mugabe. Mnangagwa, who deposed Mugabe in a military coup last November before winning a disputed election in July, had promised to change.
